For a casual non-technical user it may be too complicated to use. Nextcloud service requires the user to run and install the software on a device acting as server. Although extensive documentation is available, it is much more complex to run and requires a lot more steps to install than say Dropbox or Spideroak. See More
Synology NAS does support Dropbox, Google drive and other ones like Amazon Cloud, and NextCloud doesn't make it easy to add this support. Yes, it is possible to add a NextCloud client using PHP, but once you add it, the options are really limited, which, using Dropbox, is just a quick and efficient experience for workflow and for any user.

You have control over your data/installation and it uses modern standards like two factor authentication and encryption. There is a security bug bounties program and a strong emphasize on security from the Nextcloud GmbH with a powerful community testing every aspect for vulnerabilities. https://nextcloud.com/secure/ See More
They can create derivative works, they can perform it, they can modify it, and they can publish it at will. There are many other specific rights they take over your product. Read the Terms carefully and compare with ANY others. See More
You can use Dropbox via website, by installing a desktop client that creates a folder that you simply drag and drop files into, or with their mobile app. Everything synchronizes across all devices used and cloud storage. And Dropbox offers easy methods of sharing whatever is within it. See More
Whether using desktop client or web interface, simply right click on the file you want to share and select Dropbox > Share link, then send the link to the people you want to share the file with. The recipient does not require a Dropbox account. See More
I've been using it for a short time, but I'm quite impressed with: 1) the fast connection and sync (I'm in Europe), 2) the pCloud drive feature (network drive). Wish they would include a longer history versioning without extra payment (30 days seems short after paying Premium). In any case, pCloud made me drop Dropbox Plus. See More
I am user of pCloud since 2015. So far I cannot tell anything but that the service is awesome... Quick file sharing, lots and lots of space, virtual hard drive on my PC, access my files anytime, anywhere... and so much more... Well I can talk a lot about pCloud and its benefits but you should try it yourself... See More
Not being able to easily back up office works through an integrated office suite can be a set back when comparing to backup apps like Drive. While you can set certain apps to save their files to the Box folder, it is not as easy as using something like Google Docs, which not only saves while you are working but as soon as you are done, with no extra steps. See More
On some other services you can see previous versions and deleted files for a time, but with OneDrive, these are only available on the computer the edit was made. So if someone who has write permission on your shared folder deletes your stuff you just have to ask them to go in their recycle bin (and hope they didn't empty it!), which makes it less useful for teams. See More
CloudApp allows you to share images, links, music, videos and files. Choose a file, drag it to the menubar and a short URL will be automatically copied to your clipboard that you can use to share your upload. Additionally you can view, track and delete files right from your menubar. See More
Tresorit's client-side encryption technology secures your files on your device with some of the highest grade encryption methods available and your files can’t be decrypted in the cloud. No one else has the decryption key, not even Tresorit administrators. Only you and those who you share with have access. See More
Tresorit’s DRM gives heightened control over sharing and release of files. That means protected files cannot be accidentally emailed to the wrong recipient, leaked by a hacker or eavesdropping systems administrator, or copied to a USB drive. See More
After dragging & dropping files, a link for sharing will be in your clipboard. You can also paste from your clipboard into the web view. When you share a stream with someone they can start viewing it even before all files have been uploaded. All this makes it easy and straightforward to use. See More
